India successfully tests n-capable Agni-I missile

Friday July 13, 2012 11:23:24 PM, IANS

Bhubaneswar: India Friday successfully test-fired its indigenously developed nuclear-capable surface-to-surface Agni-I missile from a military base in Odisha, a defence official said.

The missile, which can strike a target 700 km away and can carry a one tonne nuclear warhead, was tested by the armed forces from a facility on Wheeler Island near Dhamra in Bhadrak district, 170 km from here.

"It hit the target with hundred per cent accuracy. It was a perfect test," director of the Integrated Test Range, M.V.K.V. Prasad, told IANS. "This was another user trial with a short range."

Amongst those who witnessed the test were Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) chief V.K. Saraswat.

Agni is an intermediate range ballistic missile. It uses solid propulsion booster and a liquid propulsion upper stage, derived from India's first indigenously developed ballistic missile Prithvi.
